Liz Vellali takes 2nd prize for Yale’s Winter Recipe Roundup contest

Liz Vellali & the giant skillet cinnamon roll
January 19, 2021
Congratulations to Liz Vellai for winning 2nd prize in the 2021 Winter Recipe Roundup contest for her entry Giant Skillet Cinnamon Roll with Orange Cream Cheese Glaze. Liz attended the Dr. Oz show in 2019 and watched the Pioneer Woman make a giant coffee roll. Having enjoyed the roll, using the cookbook given to her on that day, Liz made it and sought out a better dough recipe. After tweaking the ingredients, she asked some friends to taste test. The roll was a tremendous “hit” and they asked if Liz would make and sell them at farmers markets!
